Pack Up Your Troubles in Your Old Kit Bag

“Everytime you smile at someone, it is an action of love,
a gift to that person, a beautiful thing.”

- Mother Teresa
(26 Aug 1910 - 05 Sept 1997)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

         My mama (the late Maxine Frix Buckley - John Marshall HS - '25) (19 May 1908 - 15 Feb 1999) used to sing this old WWI song  to  my sister (Eleanor Buckley Nowitzky - '59 - of NC) and me often to teach us a valuable lesson about bearing our burdens gracefully. It still comes readily to my mind whenever I need to refresh that thought.

BONUS #2 - Pack Up Your Troubles - Spike Jones, 1942

BONUS #3 - Pack Up Your Troubles - The Andrews Sisters and Dick Haymes


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pack_Up_Your_Troubles_in_Your_Old_Kit-Bag:

"Pack Up Your Troubles in Your Old Kit-Bag, and Smile, Smile, Smile" is the full name of a World War I marching song, published in 1915 in London. It was written by George Henry Powell under the pseudonym of "George Asaf", and set to music by his brother Felix Powell.[1] A play presented by the National Theatre recounts how these music hall stars rescued the song from their rejects pile and re-scored it to win a wartime competition for a marching song.[2] It became very popular, boosting British morale despite the horrors of that war. It was one of a large number of music hall songs aimed at maintaining morale, recruiting for the forces, or defending Britain's war aims

 From Danny Crockett ('65) of FL - 07/21/19, 9:42 AM:
Carol,

I hope things are getting better for you. You've done a remarkable job keeping up with all of us and it's sad to realize that we are all aging when my memories of NNHS are still so fresh in my mind.
I noticed in the 1964 Memorial that
Ed Beasley was not mentioned. He passed away in late January 2019.
Through all of these years Ed and I remained close friends and it broke my heart to lose him shortly after he learned he had an aggressive form of Tuberculosis.
Again, take care of you and
    Paul (Harty - Bardolph HS, IL - '61). You are a NNHS treasure.

Dan Crockett
Class of 65

   Thank you so much for all your kind words, Danny! Good or bad, we should have some health updates soon.

   I'm not sure, but I think your devices are playing tricks on you, as mine often do. I blame gremlins. Eddie is hiding in plain sight third from the top of the 1964 In Memoriam page, with a link to his Memorial Edition. I'd no idea that he'd died of tuberculosis, so I've added that to his entry.

   I'm so sorry for the loss of your close friend, which is always devastating. Though we'd not kept in touch, I have many fond memories of Eddie from our high school days. He used to phone me from time to time and play Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata to me. My mama would see me with a phone stuck in my ear for fifteen minutes or so without saying a word and look at me like we were crazy, but it was very soothing to both of us.


    From Jamey Douglas Bacon ('66) of VA - 07/20/19, 2:25 AM:

  Thanks, Jamey!

FINALLY:
From www.ajokeaday.com - 07/21/16:
 
A retiree was given a set of golf clubs by his co-workers. Thinking he'd try the game, he asked the local pro for lessons, explaining that he knew nothing whatever of the game. The pro showed him the stance and swing, then said, "Just hit the ball toward the flag on the first green."

The novice teed up and smacked the ball straight onto the green, where it stopped inches from the hole.

"Now what?" the fellow asked the speechless pro.

"Uh... you're supposed to hit the ball into the cup," the pro finally said, after he was able to speak again.

"Oh great! NOW you tell me!" said the beginner.

Pack Up Your Troubles in Your Old Kit-Bag

Lyrics by George Henry Powell (27 Apr 1880 - 03 Dec 1951), 1915

Music by Felix Powell (23 May 1878 – 10 Feb 1942)


Private Perks is a funny little codger
With a smile a funny smile.
Five feet none, he’s and artful little dodger
With a smile a funny smile.
Flush or broke he’ll have his little joke,
He can’t be suppress’d.
All the other fellows have to grin
When he gets this off his chest, Hi!

CHORUS: [sung twice after each verse]
Pack up your troubles in your old kit-bag,
And smile, smile, smile,
While you’ve a lucifer to light your fag,
Smile, boys, that’s the style.
What’s the use of worrying?
It never was worth while, so
Pack up your troubles in your old kit-bag,
And smile, smile, smile.

Private Perks went a-marching into Flanders
With his smile his funny smile.
He was lov’d by the privates and commanders
For his smile his funny smile.
When a throng of Bosches came along
With a mighty swing,
Perks yell’d out, “This little bunch is mine!
Keep your heads down, boys and sing, Hi!

Private Perks he came back from Bosche-shooting
With his smile his funny smile.
Round his home he then set about recruiting
With his smile his funny smile.
He told all his pals, the short, the tall,
What a time he’d had;
And as each enlisted like a man
Private Perks said ‘Now my lad,’ Hi!
